Merry mail. To help celebrate the holiday season, all First-Class Mail postage stamps will be canceled using the national holiday postmark from Dec. 2-31. This year’s postmark features a festive wreath — a nod to the new Holiday Wreaths stamps.
Another holiday postmark is available through the Greetings from the North Pole Post Office program, which allows children to mail a letter to Santa Claus and receive a personalized reply in an envelope with a special North Pole postmark.
Letters must be received by Dec. 13 to receive the North Pole postmark.
REAL deal. Starting Oct. 1, 2020, all travelers will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license in order to clear airport security checkpoints to fly within the United States.
Valid passports or military IDs or another forms of REAL ID-compliant identification will also be accepted.
Many states issue REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards, distinguished by a star at the top of the card.
